In the fall of 2020, Andréa Tremblay, Marc-Olivier Gingras, Jennifer Launière and Janine Tremblay participated in the Territoire de rencontres (Territories of Encounters) camp. In a formula particularly adapted to the current health situation, they had the training and support of coaches in hybrid mode. They carried out intergenerational encounters independently with their family members or according to the health measures in effect. During these encounters, they made several video clips that they then shared with artist Sophie Kurtness. Here is a montage of excerpts captured by Andréa Tremblay during these cultural camps.
Created by artist
Sophie Kurtness is an Ilnu multidisciplinary artist from of Mashteuiatsh, with a bachelor's degree in art from the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi. Painting and installation are her preferred mediums. Her works represent and are inspired by the Nitassinan, by the territory and by the culture of the Pekuakamiulnuatsh. They illustrate the link that unites the Ilnu to the land, to the spirits and to the animals. Her work is a mixture between sensitivity and strength, between what we see and what we feel.
